BVA sees victory on revalidation campaign

The British Veterinary Association (BVA) has welcomed plans for reforms to the training and revalidation system for Official Veterinarians (OVs), after spearheading a campaign to make the process more user-friendly and relevant for the UK profession.

Under the new plans announced today (31 January) by the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA), OVs carrying out critical animal health and welfare, and public health work in areas such as tuberculin testing, surveillance and exports will be asked to revalidate their qualifications every four years, and be offered a six-month window in which to complete this process.
